The kerfuffle surrounding Theo Walcott is out of control.
The poor lad will be suffering at the moment but it seems almost everyone is enjoying kicking him whilst he is down.
I fully admit that Theo hasn't done enough this season to warrant a place in England's World Cup squad. Far from it in fact, but what he doesn't need right now is people jumping on an already rolling band-wagon trying to explain why.
It's done now, just leave it. Walcott doesn't need the likes of Chris Waddle basically saying that he is shit and he didn't deserve his place anyway.
What he needs right now is an arm around the shoulder. A talk to prove Fabio Capello wrong in the future and not these harsh words.
Waddle should know what its like to be a young footballer under pressure. He was one once. What he should also know is Walcott is probably the most under-pressure footballer to wear the England shirt in recent times.
So why be so harsh? It's almost as if now he and the Theo-bashers can say I told you so.
Theo, the poor little git has now had TWO World Cup nightmares at the grand old age of 21. I feel for the boy. I really do.
Where is anyone offering support in the public eye? Where is the help? People are quick to criticise but not sharp enough to help. It's like they are enjoying watching Theo fail.
That's why Theo needs us. The Gooners. We can support him and hopefully, through this bitter disappointment, he can come back next season a more refreshed and focused player.
Get behind Walcott now. He needs us.
Keep it Goonerish..........
